Deadline: December 15, 2023
Applications are open for the European Press Prize 2024. Journalists from all 46 countries of the Council of Europe, and from Belarus and Russia, are invited to present their best work produced in the past year.
The European Press Prize was founded in 2012. Quality journalism is of vital importance to healthy democracies, especially in a time when information is omnipresent. Therefore, the European Press Prize is committed to encouraging journalism of the highest quality in Europe – because a healthy, well-informed public debate led by professional journalists is crucial for democracy and the rule of law.
By celebrating the many skilled professionals who operate in the field of independent quality journalism, the Prize wants to set an example of what quality journalism in Europe entails.
The European Press Prize 2024 accepts entries in five categories:
- Distinguished Reporting
- Investigative Reporting
- Migration Journalism
- Public Discourse
- Each award is for 10,000 Euros, to be spent wherever possible on a personal project that may, in turn, enrich the practice of journalism.
- Journalists from all 46 countries of Europe as defined by the Council of Europe and Belarus and Russia are eligible to enter their work.
- Journalists working in Europe and journalists writing for a European media organisation or blog can submit their work.
- The work submitted must have a publication date between December 1, 2022 and December 31, 2023.
Submit your article in the language of the original publication. Articles selected for the longlist will be translated into English. If you have an English translation or wish to arrange your own translation, feel free to do so. Submit this translation with your application. If you do not have an English translation, you can enter your work in the original language of the publication.
